Kingman is a fan of most all meats in the cultural stew, especially of the musical variety. There's pretty much no music I don't like (country AND western) but I feel compelled to say this publicly: I do not like Dave Matthews.
It's just one of those things. I don't get him, never have, never will. I don't begrudge anyone who does dig him, but please keep it to yourself. Just thinking about those shrieking fiddles, pointless sax solos and doofy chord structures makes me reach for my nearest Dead Kennedys LP to perform an aural enema on my brain.
That said, guess what kids? Dave Matthews Band tickets go on sale for Citi Field

Dave Matthews Band will be the second artist to perform at Citi Field

The Grammy Award-winning group is touring Europe in support of its
album, "Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King," its first studio album in
The Mets are continuing their musical tradition of hosting some of the
biggest acts in music that began with the Beatles' legendary musical
christening of Shea Stadium in 1965. The former home of the Mets hosted
acts including Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, the Police, the Rolling
Stones, and the Who. Paul McCartney and now Dave Matthews Band are
keeping the rock-n-roll spirit going at the Mets' new home.
The shows will be held rain or shine and are promoted by Live Nation
